Love this forum, the technical threads have really brought me back up to speed. Maybe I'll get to ski with some of you this year on the front range, although I don't think I'll make it to the gathering of the bears.

48 yrs old
learned to ski at Kissing Bridge and Holiday Valley in Western NY.

been living in western Wyoming since 1978, skiing Jackson for the last 23 seasons, with the last 11 being with a season pass

Skis I presently own
Salomon Superaxe 2v(??) 192
K2 Big Kahuna 190
Salomon scream pilots 914 192(?) still sitting in closet awaiting more snow.

Hate bumps, love powder, end up skiing fast cruisers a lot. One knee has been scoped, don't want another.

Besides skiing I admit to being an avid bird hunter (I train pointing dogs) and a less avid big game hunter. Its not very politically correct but I am a life NRA member and a registered Democrat, even I am not always sure what to make of that!!

Wow, from your earlier posts you mentioned you were young but I would have put you closer to 20. You show more wisdom in some of your comments than some of us older folks. Glad you enjoy the chatter and I certainly don't hold your age or gender against you. I just hope we don't offend you with some of the slightly off color comments sometimes made. Take care and have a great holiday.
